The winter storm that’s affecting most of Wyoming is not an equal-opportunity employer.

Looking at photos and videos posted on Facebook, particularly on our favorite page “Wyoming Through The Lens“, you see a remarkable difference in how the storm is impacting different areas of the state.

Up here in Hulett, the sun is peaking through the clouds and the high temperature should be around 50 degrees.

Same with Douglas where there are reports of many downed trees.


While over in Jackson, the storm produced a picture-perfect Christmas wonderland.

Contrast that to Rock Springs where the movie ‘The Shining’ comes to mind.

What a lovely summer blizzard!
